Boekbeschrijving

The second edition of this book has been written to clean up some of the poorly worded text in the first edition and to show important Bible verses rather than just refer to them. In examining this second chapter of the epistle of James, authorship, time of writing, and its place in the canon are discussed. After that, the rest of the book focuses on not being a respecter of persons, everyone's guilt by the law, faith without works, and justification by works. Many people struggle with the contrast between faith and works. So this book shows the relationship between the two and how they work together in a Christian's life.We have been brought together by a common Savior for the common cause of exalting and glorifying our heavenly Father. Jesus loves everyone. He gave Himself for everyone. Why do people show preferential treatment to some and not to others? Why are many people prejudiced against certain segments or classes of humanity? Is being prejudiced always wrong? These are questions that require some consideration. We praise the apparently successful because they are apparently successful. However, God does not choose the poor to be the recipients of His faith just because they are poor. He also does not keep the rich from having the same because they are rich. Living on both sides of the grave equally well means to consider this life’s decisions in light of how they will affect you for eternity. If being rich causes a person to ignore their need for the Lord, then that person would be much better off poor.Those that have received Christ’s love are those that will share it. Those that have received His mercy are the ones that will extend it. Those that have a saving faith in Jesus are the ones that will perform the works of the Christian faith. Christians do not do the things that they do so that they can be Christians. They do them because they are Christians. When James asked if faith alone can save implying that good works should also be evident, he was really saying that believing "into" Jesus and having that unique relationship with Him causes us to do good works.We recognize His deity. We acknowledge His virgin birth, His sinless life, His death on the cross for our sins, His resurrection from the grave, and His ascension back to heaven. We do not just believe in the existence of some kind of faraway god. We believe in the one and only true God of the universe, the One that created everything and oversees all. We believe in the God of the Bible. We believe in the inerrancy of His Word because it is His Word. Therefore, may Christ be the One that gets all the honor and glory for what He has done and continues to do in the hearts and lives of those that trust Him.
